Women In Wine – Chef & Winemakers’ Dinner is a celebration and an exclusive opportunity to meet and hear from four all-star, award-winning female winemakers and their highly respected wineries from around the country.

The evening begins with a welcome reception in Bellini Bar – featuring the Huia Sparkling Brut Rosé on arrival, snacks and live opera, before adjourning to FISH Restaurant for a four course and wine pairing dinner. The dinner will be MC’d by Master of Wine, Jane Skilton as we hear about the wines and stories from the winemakers.

In the kitchen, Giada Grilli (Head Chef at Skycity Auckland) is teaming up with Des Harris (Hilton Auckland’s Culinary Director) and his female kitchen brigade. Together, these two culinary maestros have designed an exquisite four course wine matched menu along with snacks for the evening.
